PSG coach Christophe Galtier confirms Lionel Messi is not injured


PSG coach Christophe Galtier has confirmed that Lionel Messi is not injured.

Lionel Messi scored for PSG in their 1-1 draw vs. Benfica but was also substituted out. As soon as he was substituted out, fans began to worry as he appeared to be with the PSG medical staff.

Christophe Galtier put all fears to bed following the game. The PSG coach spoke to RMC Sport about Messi’s substitution. Here is what he had to say:

“He gestured saying he wanted to be substituted. On the last play, he felt tired. He came out because he was tired and a fresh team mate was a lot more interesting at the moment.”


    • Dimaria has past his prime. He struggles against deep blocks he will only be useful when the opponent side is attacking us and leaves space behind. He can’t do anything in tight space he will be nullified that’s why dimaria struggled against Jamaica but was very useful against Brazil

      • Anuparno, did you even realize that Di Maria was just returning from injury in the friendlies last month? Which means he was not match fit. So because he was playing at 50% fitness vs Jamaica, your conclusion now is that he can not operate in tight spaces? What about Uruguay away did he not score from a tight space? Just in case you haven’t noticed Messi and Di Maria are not gonna all out in friendlies at their ages. Besides, those match were to try different players and tactics.

  1. At age 35 with poor previous season, Messi has taken full control of this PSG team as their main man and engine. His scoring is back and along with his playmaking skills, he is their best player atm. However he needs to take it easy now.
